Group Meeting Gathered Around the Kitchen Table

We had Sara’s group meeting last night—a small, intimate gathering around the kitchen table. Sara’s group isn’t big; she has a few long-distance members, but the rest are local and the numbers are small enough that we can fit in my stamp studio (when it’s clean) or around the kitchen table. We chose the kitchen table last night because that’s where the food was. . . . need I say more?

Sara’s group meetings are quite informal. We talk about business and products and recruiting and things like that, but it’s not in a particularly organized way. We usually have a Make & Take and a demonstration, as well as a swap. We also planned our next meeting (an overnight retreat—can’t wait), but mostly we chat about what’s new in each others’ lives.

I did the Make & Take last night (cheated by using my Tacoma project—why not?) and the demonstration. For the demonstration, I spotlighted our Holiday Frame Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I also shared the sticky-note framelit tip. Sometimes those framelits slide around a bit when you’re trying to run them through the Big Shot, but when you use a sticky note to hold them in place, it makes a huge difference!

Here’s a second variation of the same card.

Sara did the swap, using our Noel Notes Simply Sent Kit, and I loved what she did with it! It was cute and so quick and easy! She made a few extras to send to her long-distance downline as well.

I enjoy Sara’s meetings. They are short and sweet (usually under two hours), fun, and inspiring—I look forward to them every time! Hopefully her downline members enjoy them as much as I do!
